Visit Phoenix and Scottsdale in a Valley of the Sun Road Trip

Road Trip Planners enjoy creating trips to the Valley of the Sun because they can bet on getting blue skies and sunny days for the duration of their trip. Going on a Summer Road Trip to Phoenix and Scottsdale ranks as one of the Best Destinations in the U.S.

Why? Because it gives travelers more than 325 sunny days a year! So it’s really a year-round destination. Now factor in the other attributes of russet and purple mountains as your constant backdrop, a huge assortment of hotels (including an abundance of world-class resorts, golf courses and spas), a wide choice of sports and activities to enjoy and you begin to understand why so many road trip planners head there for their summer vacations.

Here are some sample trips to the region that others have taken. Consider saving one you like, give it your own trip name and then have fun customizing it to reflect your personal taste and energy level. At the very least, you’ll pick up great ideas for your own trip.
